Quick question about the Flu Shot...

My baby is 6 months she gets her flu shot this Friday... what can I expect? is it like all of the other shots she has gotten or should I be ready for her to be sick and have a fever? Has your child had a flu shot? If so how did he or she react!?

  • Mine didn't get any symptoms other than being a little more tired.

    she ran fevers with all the other shots though.

  • Mine never had any kind of symptoms either. Each child is different. I would ask this to your pediatrician.

  • I wouldn't do it. that's one of the most unnecessary shots on the market. It's the one and only vax I don't give my kids, and I don't get it either.
